What is a Conservation Easement?
A conservation easement is a voluntary legal agreement between a landowner and a land trust (Loon Echo) or government agency that permanently limits uses of the land in order to protect its conservation values. Landowners retain many of their rights, including the right to own and use the land, sell it and pass it on to their heirs. Find out more HERE.
